Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

It's been about a year since my last journal entry and my last submission to dA.
Due to what seems rampant and endless art theft, tracers, and websites profiting from "art they found online", I've decided to remove the majority of my work from dA.

I haven't been using this site much anyway and I haven't had a lot of time for pinups.

Here are some tips for folks who actually want to do the right thing. Consider this my last update:
- is the creator's name on the piece you've found? Is it legit theirs? Do a Google image search.
- did you find a website that sells items without anyone's name and the website blatantly refuses to list their creators? Do not buy from them.
- want to buy something but you have done a Google image search and dug for hours trying to find the original creator and found nothing? I'm afraid that is how things go sometimes. You now have to decide if handing a thief your money for a material item is worth denying it to the obscure artist.
- do you know the contact information/social media of the creator whose work you've found on a site making money from it? Message them and ask for affiliation and send a link. Yes, it causes a lot of anger and frustration but it's better to know if your work is making a profit for someone else than let it keep happening.
- TL;DR - tell people when their work is being stolen and don't buy stolen goods. Take the ten minutes or so to find a name on the merchandise and, if you can't find it, do not support that store.

With so much ease of access and printers really not giving a shit, it's too easy for these assholes to turn a profit on the hard work of others.
And if you're sitting there smirking and going "well if it's online then it's free", fuck you. Like my entire asshole.

If you're looking for art gifts/trades/fan art I've done, it's probably still on my computer and I can send it to you.

Thank you for all of your support.
